This is a wonderful partnership between the students, faculty and the Mission.

Nobody’s Perfect Parenting – Dates and Times Coming Soon

General

NEW: Bridges to LIFE 
The LIFE (Living Independently For Ever!) program is designed for recently homeless people who have found accommodation and those who are still homeless and awaiting the opportunity to be housed as they strive to make a positive transition into their new communities.

One central goal of LIFE is to develop ‘intentional friendships’, matching people from the community with a ‘friend’ who is moving into a Surrey neighborhood. We hope to connect caring individuals from the community with a person who is making a new start, providing a supportive community network and friendship as people seek to move forward in their lives.

Our Monday evening social night brings people together and it is hoped that intentional as well as spontaneous friendships develop. We hope and expect that friendships will last beyond the life of the program.

LIFE offers Surrey residents a tangible way to welcome people into their community and provides a unique volunteer opportunity for compassionate people who want to help make a distinct difference in the life of another.
